Winning an award in the Image Interiors Design Awards was a fabulous experience, and I'm not just referring to the great company, food and wine, or even the very heady experience of hearing your name called out from a list of people and companies you really admire. The award for us was a real validation that our makers can produce work which is recognised as excellent by some of the most discerning design folk in the land.
The judges said our approach 'was the way forward', and that facilitating Irish designers and training craftspeople to overcome adversity was inspiring. We hope all the designers and makers see this as an award acknowledging their desire to create, connect and do things differently.
We are certainly proud of what we have all achieved, and that it reflects society's growing design for beautiful things that embody our core values - love, connection and beauty.
